  • For the best results, ensure surfaces to be coated with Dulux Trade Ultimate Opaque are sound, clean and dry.
  • Remove all loose and defective coatings, stripping back to bare wood if necessary.
  • Where the surface has been previously painted, it may be necessary to strip back to bare wood if the coating is in poor condition.
  • Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1970s painted surfaces as they may contain harmful lead.
  • Remove all traces of mould, algae, lichen or moss with a suitable Multi-Surface Fungicidal Wash or mould and mildew cleaner.
  • Remove defective glazing material, clean the rebates and any loose or open joints.
  • Replace any rotten wood and troublesome knots with new preservative treated timber.
  • Thoroughly rub down all surfaces in the direction of the grain to remove any grey, weathered wood and surface sheen from remaining coatings taking care to remove all traces of sanding dust from the area to be stained.
  • Prime all bare wood with 2 coats of Dulux Trade Aquatech Preservative Basecoat Plus (BP) including any new or bare replacement beading. Excess basecoat should be wiped off all surrounding paintwork.
  • Fill any surface defects, open joints, etc. and replace any missing glazing material. Do not use linseed oil putty for glazing (or making good). Use external beads set in an appropriate non-setting mastic or a special glazing compound.
  • Although new joinery is often factory primed using a stain basecoat, these materials quickly erode when left exposed and may need to be re-primed.

Always do a test area before starting any project to test adhesion and final finish and follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.

Stir contents of tin thoroughly before and during application to ensure a consistent finish.
